Exit polls: Left-wing coalition leads French parliamentary elections

France’s left-wing New Popular Front coalition won the most seats in the second round of voting in parliamentary elections, top pollsters said on Sunday (7), putting them on course for an unexpected victory over the far-right National Rally (RN) party but short of an outright majority in parliament.

An IFOP estimate for broadcaster TF1 said the New Popular Front could win 180-215 seats in parliament in the second round of voting, while an Ipsos poll for France TV projected 172-215 seats for the left bloc.

An Opinionway poll for C News TV said the New Popular Front would win 180-210 seats, while an Elabe poll for BFM TV projected a range of 175-205 seats for them.

President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist bloc was ahead of Marine Le Pen’s RN party in the battle for second place, according to these polls.

289 seats are needed to obtain an absolute majority in the National Assembly, the lower house of the French parliament.
